Glad you liked it Dave. I thought it brilliant.

Brilliant spot SR - now that is humour!

FAIRFACTS MEDIA said...

I loved it too !!!

Macheath said...

An excellent choice - and one of my favourites!

(But I can tell you from experience that you get funny looks if you find yourself absent-mindedly singing it out loud in the endless security queue at Stansted.)

I wonder if Michael O'Leary finds it amusing?

On second thoughts I don't suppose he gives a ****

Fantastic! I have seen this before, but what are they called?

They're called 'Fascinating Aida', Gildas. Witty little cabaret act with conservative leanings. Started in the 1980's, and have been doing this sort of stuff ever since.

"Only fecking gobshites think there's flights for fifty pee." Dilly and friends at their very best.

Glad all of you enjoyed it. I'd never seen it before until a friend emailed it this morning.

Bill, you've beaten me to it. I emailed it to an Irish friend earlier yesterday and just received the reply. You're spot on. This is what was returned:

Excellent, subrosa!

Had to laugh at your "You might also like:" and then a picture of Lord George!

Anastasia Fitzgerald-Beaumont said...

Super stuff!

subrosa said...

Aye Brownlie, I saw that myself and laughed.

Brian said...

Brilliant!
Reminds me of when Michael O'Leary went into a bar in Dublin and asked for a Guinness. "One euro, Mr O'Leary" said the barman. "That's cheap" replied the popular Ryanair CEO, handing over the money. "Will you be wanting a glass with your Guinness, sir?" asked the barman.

subrosa said...

Good one Brian.

Brian said...

Thanks SR. Here's another (true)one:
Ryanair may be forced to publish its email address on its website.

subrosa said...

Brian, many thanks for that, most enlightening. I never deal with sites which don't have a 'contact us' button with a postal and email address.

Sometimes, depending on what I'm buying, I email beforehand on some pretext, just to see how and when they reply.
